He stood for the bridegroom, who was in this country, and as he happened to be a married man, he has been arrested for bigamy. Even though all the ladies in the land should be driven to suicide in order to enjoy a pretty fashion, still, as a faitH ful chronicler, we feel compelled to state that a fashionable Paris dressmaker an- nounces that "ladies shrouds are now cut decoUette." "A 8JIART young Bostonian offers to wager a considerable amount on his spelling.

POOR GEORGE GA YLK It.will be remembered-.what a thrill of horror startled the country eleven yearsTago, caused by an, advertisement which appeared in an'Alabama papert offering 1,000,000 Ward for" the as sassination of President En? coi.k. " The t advertisement first saw the light in the columns of the Cah'aba Gazette, and was-the production ot the town drank- ard; "an eccentricTcreatnfeTy who was the wreck of one of the finest and most promising intellects Alabama -coul boast 6f twenty-fiveyeare ago. 'The' poor creature has just died, and the sad story of his life may prove instructive to the rising generation. ' GEdnoE W. Gayle was born in Dal las county, Ala., of wealthy and influ ential parents. He was. given all the educational advantages that, money could "procure. In 1832 he was admit ted to the bar at Cahaba, and such was the force and brilliancy of his intellect that hd soon ranked in the front of . his profession. Gayle was to Alabama what meteoric' DicK Menipej was to Kentucky. . Adulation soon spoiled him however, and in five years after he made his brilliant debut he was a drunk-: ard. He soon squandered his portion of the estate left by his father, and for twerjty.y.ears has been the eccentric vag abond of Cahaba, the object to. which it. would point the stranger, as its "wrecked genius." Ilia board was paid and he was clothed by hi relatives. At the time he published the advertise menf offering $1,000,000 reward'fdr the assassination of Lincoln he wa3 not worth a penny to his name. As soon as the war closed the editors of the Ca haba Gazette were arrested for having published the advertisement In their examination it was found that Gayle was the author of it. He was arrested and hurried off to Fortress Monroe, where he was confined about fifteen months, and, after he became partially paralyzed in his lower limb, through the intercession of- his wife who had clung to him through all the years of his degradation with a devotion of which a loving woman alone is capablej was released by President Johnson. On the 5th instant this unfortune creature died at Selma, adding one more to the countless host of those born to be lead ers of men, but who have become the slaves of base appetite; and gone down to their graves the squalid and repulsive prey of intemperance TirERE is a young fellow in Hendef- son whose future happiness depends up on the result of the Brooklyn trial, be cause tne girl he" loves has promised to marry him if Beecttek is pronounced innocent; otherwise she declares that her confidence in man will be destroyed and she will never wed. The spelling school mania is taking queer shapes. Li Madison county, LL , a-girl has offered herself as a prize to the one'of her four suitors who outspells the others. The trial is to-come off id the district school house next Saturday. Twenty-five cents will be the price of admission, the money to go toward fur nishing a house for thejoung couple. Here is something that should be more generally known. It is said that bed-bugs will live a year without air or food, if placed in a hermetically Bealed bottle. Persons who desire to keep their "bed-bugs over the winter without feeding them, will do well to remember this. Tho march of scientific research is ever onward. An appropriate sequel to the recent decision of tbe Appellate Court in the Jones case, and as something m per fect consonance with the eternal fitness of things, would be for the Cth of May .Convention to adopt a resolution de claring Hon Wm. Pitt Kellogq, of Louisiana, to be the first choice of the Kentucky Democracy for President. "DuBUQtJE beaux have started the fashion of carrying their fair charges across the muddy cross streets." That has been' the Habit here these hundred years. When a Hartford couple come to a muddy crossing, he stoops, hunch es hisbacklikeacamel, and says; "Now fly to your roost, dovey." She springs onto his back, seizes his ears with her bands, rattles a dainty heel on his ribs, and he trots off fueling that he wouldn't exchange that blissful moment for a week's free range of a sugar;camp.
